CHICKEN POLITICS

Nancy Pelosi’s Got Our Back With This Whole Chicken-Sandwich-Of-Hate Thing

Just in case you were wondering, the first female Speaker of the House isn’t above snacking on some Colonel’s Crispy Strips now and then.

For what it’s worth, KFC isn’t rated by the Human Rights Campaign’s Corporate Equality Index, so it’s hard to tell exactly how pro-gay the chain is (or isn’t.)

But bizarrely, Bloomberg News reports that KFC’s buckets are partially made of wood harvested from Indonesian rain forests, which devastates the habitat of the endangered Sumatran tiger. Sigh.

UPDATE: Turns out that Yum! Brands is indeed rated by the HRC. They have a 45, which is not so great even before you factor in the whole tiger thing.
